Festival of Careers
8 - 10 October 2019

The Festival of Careers is the flagship careers event at the University of Leicester. Taking place early in the academic year, this week-long Festival brings together a series of careers fairs, and application and selection workshops.

At the University of Leicester, we’re fortunate to have a vibrant mix of students from a diverse range of social and cultural backgrounds. Our Festival of Careers gives you a great platform to meet students face-to-face, and to raise awareness of your organisation and the roles you are looking to fill. Whether it’s freshers or second year students, finalists or recent graduates, the group(s) you target will be there to meet you.

Making the best use of your time

Following hugely positive feedback from exhibitors over previous years, we are committed to ensuring our careers fairs continue to set the standard.

An award-winning strategy: Our students understand where they are in their personal career development journey, and how meeting employers can help them develop. We are very proud to have recently been awarded the ‘Best University Employability Strategy’ by TARGETjobs.

Student preparation: We are still the only University in the UK to have adopted a ‘no prep – no entry’ approach. This means students have to prepare in order to gain access to employer-led careers events.

Students that have quality conversations: We devote a significant amount of resource to supporting students’ engagement with employers, making sure you have quality conversations with the right students. We have introduced a new feature this year ‘#GetConnected’, which will promote these conversations further.

A great package: We want to ensure you get maximum return on your investment when partnering with the University of Leicester.
